Album Description
Available in: Country Icon
Chaos and Disorder is the eighteenth studio album by Prince (his stage name at that time being the love symbol he created). It was his final album of new material for Warner Bros. Records and was therefore produced as a collection of leftovers only put on record to fulfill contractual obligations. Chaos and Disorder was one of Prince's least commercially successful releases and met mixed reviews upon release. Some reviewers commented that had it not been a Prince release, it would have been met with much wider approval. The album reached #26 in the US and #14 in the UK, and is now out of print.

Album Review
The liner notes of Chaos And Disorder reveal that this album was intended as a demo. Indeed it was recorded over ten days in January 1996 and released to Warner Brothers only to complete the fifth and final delivery of Prince’s output of five albums required under the contract the parties had signed back in 1992.

The highly charged tone of the album was inspired by the embattled and very public dispute with Warner Brothers over the ownership of his past music. Released as Prince under the name of The Artist Formally Known As Prince/The Artist Formally Known As Prince, Prince blankly refused to promote nor even refer to Chaos And Disorder, in result it appealed only to fans and retailed only 100,000 units. It is his least successful album to date and is vastly underrated as a result.
